The Orillia Terriers were an ice hockey team from Orillia, Ontario, Canada that competed in the OHA Senior A and Intermediate A ranks from 1969 to 1982.

The Terriers are not known to be connected with the Couchiching Terriers of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League, although the junior club was known as the Orillia Terriers from 1989 to 1997.

HistoryEdit

The team originated as the Orillia Pepsis in 1966, but changed their name to the Terriers in 1969.

The Terriers won the OHA Senior A playoff title in 1970 and 1973 and also won the Allan Cup as Canadian Senior A champions in the latter year, defeating the visiting St. Boniface Mohawks of Manitoba 4-1 in a best-of-seven final playdown series. They had lost the 1970 national final to the Spokane Jets.

The 1972-73 edition of the club featured a number of veterans like Mike Draper, Gary Milroy and Grant Moore, all of whom had been in place since the first season, 1968-69. Also on the team were: Claire Alexander, who later played for the Toronto Maple Leafs; Jim Keon, brother of then-Leaf captain Dave Keon; Blake Ball, who played Gilmore Tuttle in the 1977 film "Slap Shot"; and goalie Louis Levasseur, who went on to all-star status in the World Hockey Association.

Orillia dropped down to Intermediate A in 1979 and left that league in 1982.
